12. Fruit of Life – Throat Chakra
The fruit of life represents the gift of our voice. We share this gift with others through words and songs. The art of storytelling connects us to our ancestors and the creation of time itself. The fruit of life is an interlocking matrix of sixty-one circles. The outer row of 24 circles represents the 24 hours in a day. The 60 circles rotating around the central circle represent the 60 minutes within one hour or 60 seconds within one minute. The 13 independent circles represent a lunar year, while the 12 circles rotating around the central one represents a solar year of 12 months. This symbol holds the mysterious yet obvious essence of time itself. The Greek word for moon is mene. Men, is a word that is both male and female. In Latin, a mense is a month. The fruit of life matrix balances the wisdom of the sacred feminine (moon) with the sacred masculine (sun.) It reminds us that man created time by following the natural laws of nature and the movements of the sun and moon.
